(1) The board shall promulgate rules requiring that an individual granted a license under this part, except as provided in subsection (2), shall meet both of the following requirements:
(a) Been granted a doctoral degree in psychology, or a doctoral degree in a closely related field, from a regionally accredited or other college, university, or institution approved by the board, which included education and training appropriate to the practice of psychology. Additionally, beginning August 1, 2011, the doctoral degree in psychology, or the doctoral degree in a closely related field, shall be from a program that has obtained the association of state and provincial psychology boards' national register designation or has been accredited by the American psychological association or the Canadian psychological association, or has obtained a similar designation from or been accredited by an entity approved by the board. For purposes of the requirement added by the amendatory act that added this sentence, a program that is in the process of obtaining this designation or becoming accredited as required in this subdivision before August 1, 2011, and that obtains the designation or becomes accredited on or before August 31, 2015, meets the requirements of this subdivision.
(b) Have not less than 1 year of postdoctoral experience in the practice of psychology in an organized health care setting or other arrangement, as established by the board.
(2) In addition to section 16182, the board shall grant a limited license to an individual granted a master's degree in psychology from a regionally accredited college, or university, or institution approved by the board, if the individual has education, training, and experience appropriate to the practice of psychology, as established by the board. Except for duties performed as an employee of a governmental entity or of a nonprofit organization serving benevolent and charitable purposes, 2 limitations shall be placed on a license granted to an individual under this subsection. The limitations shall require supervision by a psychologist who has a license other than a limited license and shall prohibit advertising or other representation to the public which will lead the public to believe the individual is engaging in the practice of psychology. A limited license granted under this subsection shall be renewed pursuant to part 161. An individual applying for a limited license pursuant to this subsection shall have 1 year of supervised postgraduate experience in an organized health care setting or other arrangement, as established by the board. The individual shall be supervised by a psychologist who has a license other than a limited license, or if a psychologist who has a license other than a limited license is not available, by a psychologist who has at least a master's degree in psychology and at least 3 years of experience in the practice of psychology or by any other individual approved by the board. The board shall issue a temporary license to the individual for the purpose of obtaining the 1 year of postgraduate experience.
